Default Cooler Master HAF 932 Full-Tower

Finding an affordable chassis that's both large and feature-packed can be a little difficult, but Cooler Master's latest HAF 932 delivers on all accounts, and the goods don't stop there. This steel full-tower features huge interior space, great ease-of-installation, many bundled fans, hardcore design... all on top of having a price tag that's easy to stomach.

You can read Bill's full article here and discuss it here!

You mentioned the top fan is exhaust, but what about the others. How do they blow?

Front and side are intakes and the top and rear are exhaust.

They have electric motors that turn blades at a certain pitch to push or pull air

I get two smart answers eh?
We could go through the fluid dynamics of what actually makes the air 'flow', but I don't have that much time. That being said, the fan doesn't actually push or pull anything and Rob isn't much closer but I'll let both of those posts go.

I think it goes without saying that an accurate description of the process would have taken more than five words

Oh indeed. The true process is still somewhat disputed between leading physicists. But the layman's understanding is simple enough.

I'm not one to argue with physicists. I'm content in knowing that they just rotate and push air, heh.
